The URCNA Synod, The Overturning of Prop 8, and other Musings

During the 2010 URCNA synod, I had a great conversation (or two) with Dr. Gerhard Visscher (of the CanRC theological seminary).  Here's Dr. Visscher's take on the URCNA-CanRC merger.  I heartily agree with Dr. Visscher's assessment.   Dr. Visscher on the CanRC-URCNA Relationship

Scott Clark offers up a very helpful take on the overturning of Prop 8 and related matters here:  Clark on Natural Law and Sexual Liberation

OK, now I've heard it all.  Here's a car which runs on human waste.  Well, actually it runs on the methane produced by processing human waste.  There are so many great quips which could be offered up, but the voice inside is saying, "don't do it!"   However, I am worried about the prospect of methane being in demand for fuel--I will either be a rich man, or else some evil cabal will capture me and run experiments to find out why my body converts pretty much everything I eat to methane.   The Poop-Mobile

So, John the Baptist's remains have been found . . . in Bulgaria?  That is the first place I would have looked.   Hey, they found bone fragments of a skull, hand and tooth.  That's all the proof I need!  Maybe these gentlemen would profit from reading Calvin's rather sarcastic treatment on relics.  We've heard this before.  More John the Baptist Relics

Now we know why aliens abduct people and insert anal probes--to figure out how they make methane.

A couple of burritos with Frank's hot sauce would raise octane levels to a new high.

So now someone can say, "My car is such a piece of $h*t."

You must be referring to a late edition of Toyota!

Very good article by Scott Clark. If the homosexual lifestyle is now considered normal today, why wouldn't these same folks argue that bestiality is not normal also?

Many years ago, I did a term paper in an ethics class on homosexuality and many of the doctors that I used as sources actually stated that when a homosextual decided that he was tired of that particular lifestyle, he or she would just decide to go straight again.

Homosexualtiy is a sin, just like lust, gambling and drinking too much. As our society regresses, it is conceivable that bestiality may eventually be considered as a normal lifestyle.

I'm sure that folks like Pelosi, Boxer and the like will be in the forefront in pushing for such rights.

Another thought that I have brought up to folks is this: Who is to say, twenty years from now that it is constitutional to abort a baby after one year of birth, on the grounds that the baby doesn't fit the standards of the parents? If it is O.K. to abort a baby after seven months, why not just before on year of age?

I can relate a bit. We received a beautiful foster child that was born at one pound and three onces. The child is on a apnea monitor, oxygen and a feeding tube. By God's grace (and the love of my wife for the baby) she is now twelve pounds. If we can adopt her, we will change her name to Grace!
